Govt notification on PFI ban mentions 4 political killings in Kerala

Thiruvananthapuram: The union government order imposing ban on the Popular Front of India (PFI) and several of its associates has mentioned various political killings instigated by the organisation in Kerala. The order stated the murder of RSS workers Sanjith in Palakkad, Nandu in Alappuzha and Bipin in Malappuram. Further, the order also mentioned the murder of Abhimanyu -- SFI activist who was stabbed to death in Maharajas College in 2018.

Besides, the notification also mentions PFI's alleged links with international terrorist organisations, including ISS, and other shady financial dealings.

The PFI and its associates or affiliates or fronts have been working covertly to increase the radicalization of one community by promoting a sense of insecurity in the country, which is substantiated by the fact that some PFI cadres have joined international terrorist organisations, the notification claimed.

Meanwhile, Kerala Police and other central government agencies will take action to close down offices of PFI in Kerala. The central government also directed the state governments to take action on the matter.
